A LESSON OF DELIVERANCE

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Ten Life Changing Lessons’ by Winsome Campbell-Green.

Today I pray, “Dear God, What is a lesson that can change each of our lives? Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“When you are unable to forgive someone, you deny yourself a life free of anger and hate.”
—WINSOME CAMPBELL GREEN

An empowering context I have assigned to difficult forgiveness is that I have a lot to accomplish while I am here, and forgiving that person frees me up to get on with the important aspects of my life that matter most. That is a last resort forgiveness. At best, I love developing a rich, lively, inspiring relationship with the people I forgive. I love having them in my life because I can see how full and whole a relationship can be once forgiveness is offered. If I can’t quite make it to that realm, however, I choose forgiveness, stop drinking the poison, and get on with my full and fascinating life!
